Police in Illinois said a man “was in disbelief” when officers told him the online girlfriend he had had a 2.5-year online relationship with was not a real person, according to media reports.

Chicago Sun-Times reports the 48-year-old man called investigators Wednesday to say he believed the woman, to whom he had wired $200,000, had been kidnapped in London.

The man told police he had wired money to the woman numerous times and to different bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States.

According to police, he had met the “woman” on the Internet and the pair began a relationship. When he asked for ID to prove she was real, he was fooled by a Florida driving license she produced, The Daily Mail reported.
